"Let me show you how you can use old knowledge even today and do something good for yourself, your family and the environment."

- Iris von Stephanitz

Hello, I'm Iris von Stephanitz ...

Let me show you how our ancestors looked after their homes and ran their household.

As a freelance Art Historian and Archaeologist, I have been working for museums for more than 20 years and for theatre, radio and television for 12 years. My particular interest lies in imparting traditional knowledge about living habits and housekeeping from the Neolithic to modern times.
